Poof has sure eaten a lot of leftover Halloween candy!
I think we should read Poof a story to get him to go to bed.
I'll read Poof a book of fairy tales!
These fairy tales are renditions of fairy tales, featuring fairies that we all know.
Look, Cosmo! This story features you! It's called "Cosmorella"!
Ooh! It's just like that Cinderella story, only it has me in it!
Once upon a time, there was a young man named Cosmo.
He had two evil stepbrothers named Rip Studwell and Juandissimo. They loved to torture Cosmo in any which way.
His stepbrothers made him do a lot of housework.
But Cosmo was in love with a beautiful young lady named Wanda, who was an expert at bowling.
Cosmo was jealous that his stepbrothers also like Wanda, and always tried to prevent him from getting a piece of her.
One day, Juandissimo received an invitation to a party at Wanda's bowling alley.
Juandissimo couldn't wait to go to Wanda's bowling party.
Neither did Rip Studwell, as he loved women as much as Juandissimo did, and he was invited to the party as well.
"Am I invited to the party?" asked Cosmo, as he thought of Wanda.
His stepbrothers just laughed at him, and told him to stay at home and do chores instead.
Poor Cosmo wished he could go to the party just so he could meet Wanda.
Suddenly, a large fairy wearing a dress and carrying a wand twice the size of him appeared out of nowhere! It was Jorgen, Cosmo's fairy godfather.
"Don't be scared" he said. "I have come to grant your wish to go to Wanda's bowling party."
First, Jorgen changed Cosmo's tattered clothing into a nifty bowling outfit, and he also gave Cosmo a pair of glass bowling shoes.
Then, Jorgen changed a pumpkin into a taxi-cab for Cosmo to ride in.
The cab also came with its own driver.
Cosmo couldn't wait to go to the bowling party.
But Jorgen warned him, "You must leave the bowling alley before midnight, because at midnight, the magic will end. The cab will turn back into a pumpkin, and your bowling garb will become rags once again."
At Wanda's bowling alley, Wanda was waiting for the perfect man to bowl with.
Cosmo arrived at the bowling alley just before Wanda was about to give up.
"So," said Cosmo. "When do we start bowling?"
But Wanda didn't want to bowl. She just wanted to dance instead.
Cosmo had so much fun dancing with Wanda, that he forgot all about the time.
Suddenly, he noticed the clock. It was almost beginning to strike midnight!
Cosmo ran as fast as he could out of the bowling alley. He didn't want Wanda to see him in rags.
Wanda tried to chase after Cosmo, but she lost sight of him. But she noticed that he left behind his glass bowling shoe.
But Wanda didn't know who it belonged to, so she decided to search for the person who wore the shoe the next day.
When Juandissimo and Rip Studwell heard about this, they decided that if they could fit their feet into the shoe, one of them would become Wanda's husband.
The next day, Wanda's carriage arrived at Cosmo's house.
Wanda arrived and asked Juandissimo if he was the owner of the glass bowling shoe that she found the other night.
Juandissimo tried to get his foot to fit into the shoe...
…but his foot was far too big to fit into it.
Rip Studwell wanted to try it, but Juandissimo thought it didn't belong to him.
They got into a fight over who owned the glass bowling shoe…..
…but the ended up breaking the shoe in the process. "Oh no!" said Wanda. "You broke the bowling shoe! How am I going to find the right man to be my husband, now?"
Then Cosmo arrived and told Wanda that it was his bowling shoe and that he was the one who lost it.
He then told Wanda that he got his glass bowling shoes from Jorgen.
But, Cosmo still had the other shoe, so Wanda was certain that he was the perfect man to be her husband!
They kissed and lived happily ever after.
Now here's the epilogue of the story:After Cosmo became Wanda's husband, they both spent their lives competing in bowling leagues, and, as I might say, they both did pretty well!
I guess it's time for another story from this book. This one is called "The Three Little Fairies and the Big Foop Wolf".
Once upon a time, there were three little fairies. Their names were Cosmo, Wanda, and Sparky. The three little fairies built their homes out of different things.
Sparky built his house out of tennis balls. Wanda built her house out of reinforced steel. And Cosmo built his house out of fried cheese sticks.
Unfortunately, none of them could agree on whose house was better.
But one day, while arguing over whose house was better, the three little fairies met a horrendous and loathsome creature.
It was the Big Foop Wolf! The Big Foop Wolf always wanted to male people gloomy and miserable. He also wanted people to suffer through intense pain.
"What are these houses doing here?" barked the Big Foop Wolf. "I wanted to use that space to built my own restaurant!"
"You wanted the space we used to build our houses?" asked Cosmo. "Gee, we're very sorry, sir. But we cannot tear our houses down so you can build a restaurant, because we worked so hard on our houses!"
But the Big Foop Wolf would not accept their apology. "Prepare to meet your end, you horrible little fairies!" he said as he pointed his baby bottle which shooted lasers at them.
The three little fairies knew that they were in trouble now. They had to do something before their houses could be demolished.
